FSU CB Greg Reid arrested in Georgia

Congratulations to Florida State cornerback Greg Reid, who sets our Days Without an Arrest ticker back to zero.

According to WCTV in Tallahassee, Reid was arrested by the Georgia State Patrol last night and charged with driving with a suspended license, possession of marijuana and a seatbelt violation.

The station confirmed the arrest through the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office, though a police report hasn’t been released yet, so details are scarce to say the least. Additionally, D.C. Reeves of reports there is nothing in the GSP’s system filed under Reid’s name (yet).

“I am aware that Greg has been charged and will gather all the information before I determine what course of action to take,” coach Jimbo Fisher said in a prepared statement.

Reid has been on the wrong side of the law before. In late September of last year, he was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors after being stopped by police on a scooter and identifying himself as a friend. Those charges were later dropped, however.

He was also suspended one game that same month for unspecified violation of team rules.

But Reid would be one of FSU’s better playmakers in 2011. He had two interceptions and was 18th in the country in punt returns with an average 11.24 yards per attempt.

    What’s Jimbos arrest count up to now? Gotta be closing in on Urban’s all time record.

    Not even close! There were 31 arrests of 25 players while Meyer was at UF. Jimbo has less than 10. Do your research YouMadCauseImStylingOnYou.

    Meyer- 31 arrests

    Jimbo- less than 10

    Wow, what a decision for Jimbo now. Does he suspend him for the Murray St game only or does he really lay down the hammer and suspend him for the Savannah St game too?

    If you want to know if a college football coach is serious about discipline, look at the first two games of the season. If he has a built in buffer, then you know he’s soft. And FSU always has a two-game buffer.

    Miami’s first two games — AT Boston College and AT Kansas St. Bring it on!

    WVU backed out on FSU for game two because of their move to the Big 12. They couldn’t find a comparable opponent on such short notice so they had to schedule Savannah St. So I don’t think that was really their fault. Also, that soft coach is 4-0 against in-state rivals UF and UM.

    As for G. Reid, he’s been a pretty good player for the Noles but I cannot wait to see him go.

    UGA fans everywhere are celebrating this and shouting “See! Other teams have discipline problems too!”

    Yeah that FAMU team that opened up in Coral Gables a couple seasons ago sure was a powerhouse.

    Shut up and get back to filling out your app to Pollo Tropical. That MDC degree won’t earn on its own, now.

    It was Paternos fault.

    Less than ten is a new number… Love it when people try to be experts relying on guesstimates…ha

  9. jimmy53 says: Jul 11, 2012 3:20 PM

    blueglaze- I said less than 10 because there were two arrests that were dropped because of issues with the arresting officers. I did not want to discount them altogether. But by all means believe what you want, everyone likes smugness…

    Suspended license, seatbelt, and a little doob. The guy is a little dim-witted, but he’s not a menace. Keep your perspective.

  11. jrsaffell says: Jul 11, 2012 4:48 PM

    He’s more than a little dim-witted and he’s a liability in coverage.

    Sorry G5, you probably will not be going to the NFL with actions and stats like yours.

    It was George Bush’s fault.

    “A couple seasons ago” is the best you’ve got? US News ranks the U #38 and FSU #101 in the country academically. If I’m working at Pollo Tropical, you’re living in their dumpster.

    Canetic: A cane fan making fun of an FSU player getting arrested–that’s just funny…. UM players didn’t get the name cons for their convictions.

    Enjoy the degree because Lord knows your football team is gonna suck for the next 10-15 years. Enjoy probation and sanctions~
